Title: Veteran Game Designer and Scenario Writer Hidenori Shibao Passes Away
Post by: Legaia on April 06, 2018, 06:49:55 AM
This is very sad news. He was active on Twitter and IG (@baoh) and was a real interesting guy all around. I will have to pick up Paladin's Quest again and give it another round. Anyone here play one or all of the games he worked on?

Hidenori Shibao, the writer and director for Paladinís Quest has passed away at 56 years old this week. He is also credited for the original concept for Legend of Legaia on PlayStation.

Shibao died from illness, with the news spreading on Monday. Apart from Paladinís Quest, he also wrote the sequel, Lennus II: Fuuin no Shito. He will be missed.

I was wondering if anyone was going to post about this on here.

Sadly, I haven't actually played any of the games he worked on, but I did check out a Legaia LP for awhile (until it too died). Doesn't help that you can't legitimately play Lennus II outside of Japan while the other two games are hard as hell to find.

If you want, please enjoy my Paladin's Quest feature (http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/series/paladins-quest-lennus/) in honor of his work. A real weird guy, I mourn his passing.
